AZ Sheriff: Obama Telegraphing ‘Make It To the Border, You’re Home Free,’ Border ‘Likely Avenue of Approach’ for Terrorists

On Monday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” on the Fox News Channel, Pinal County, AZ Sheriff and Congressional candidate Paul Babeu (R) stated that illegal immigrants are “getting telegraphed this message by President Obama and the administration, make it to the border, you’re home free.” And that the border is the “likely avenue of approach for terrorists to sneak into America.”

Babeu said that he isn’t surprised that the amount of illegal immigrants caught crossing the southern border is up in FY 2016 from FY 2015 because illegal immigrants are “getting telegraphed this message by President Obama and the administration, make it to the border, you’re home free. And they’re very concerned, very fearful that, this is all going to change with a new administration, and pray God it does, because we’ve seen in eight months — this is 45,000. These are just families that are coming across. It doesn’t include all the illegals that comes — one, by themselves, or a group of ten or 20 or 40, and so this is troubling, because just in these eight months, we’ve seen more than all of last year.”

Babeu also agreed that the notion of an “anchor baby” has changed from having children in the US, to simply getting a child over the border, and then joining them. He added, “We’re treating these refugees and asylum seekers better than we treat our own senior citizens, better than we treat our own military veterans, who are committing suicide, 22 a day.”

He further stated that the unsecured border is the “likely avenue of approach for terrorists to sneak into America.”
